Councilmember Garrett stated that she had talked to Doug Tailford about the
banner at the 118 South Main Street. She stated that Mr. Tailford seemed to think that
it is permitted. She stated that the banner had not gone through the Planning
Commission. Mrs. Garrett stated that the way the sign code is written now, banner
signs can be installed for up to a year. She stated that an exemption on banner signs
was not included in the code. She stated that Mr. Tailford had suggested that a
sentence be added to the code making it clearer. She stated that the sign committee
had wanted to allow banner signs for the school's special events.
Councilmember Shulman stated that perhaps a recommendation from the
Planning Commission should be made, then put into ordinance form.

Councilmember Garrett stated that the Village has ordinances to regulate signs but other than asking people to take down signs that are in violation, there is no punishment for violators. She stated that the real estate signs are always installed in the right of way. She stated that when they are asked to remove the signs they comply, however they continue to install signs in the right of way. Mayor Eisenberg stated that those issues were not worth fussing over unless someone like Carolyn Huey came in to complain about then.
Councilmember Garrett stated that she gets calls all the time from residents complaining that signs are cluttering up the streets. She asked w" hy have the ordinances if they are not going to be enforced?"

Mayor Eisenberg stated that the Village would need police to enforce all the
rules:He stated that the village would need pooper scooper police, sign code police
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that the reason to have the ordinances is because if
a real bad situation comes about, it can be lawfully taken care of.
Manager Plunkett stated that this was a difficult issue. He stated that
enforcement is great if the Village is aware of the violation. He stated that by
convention, most people probably turn their heads to violations on the weekends. He
stated that by Monday morning, most violations are gone.
Councilmember Shulman stated that Council had a specific case on which to
decide. He stated that Mr. Tailford had had a citizen come to him a year ago, and now
he is on the ·spot and needs some direction from Council as to what he should do.
Councilmember Montgomery stated that Mr. Tailford told her that the sign in
question had been changed three times during the year.

discuss the issue.

be installed for a year. She stated that she would be more inclined to go with two to
three weeks.

Commission for their opinion.
